Thinking in comparison
never gets you very far
Does anything compare with these simple things?
a monarch flying with the birds
kayakers passing the rocky coastline
a doe and her fawn eating grass at my campsite
a turtle in the lily pond
cooking pizza over a campfire
a sailboat on the horizon
the ocean extending beyond my vision
hot sun and salty water on my skin
sand on my feet
the scent of the sea air
falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean
then morning comes upon the shore
and when a seagull spills my coffee
it's still all good
